She Also knows the love and gratitude the adoptive family has for the birth mother. Kathy did volunteer work at an adoption agency for 15 years. She experienced the adoption process personally when her daughter became a birth mother who chose adoption. She wrote this story reflecting the love and sacrifice she saw firsthand in the adoption process.

Mango learns she is adopted and what that means: that she is loved by her birth mother and also her adopted family. Grandma Krazy, the author, handles questions about adoption with a gentle grace and love. She speaks from experience, as she explains in the beautifully written Author's Note. She goes on to further explain the adoption process in a caring way. Her simple questions for the reader provide an opportunity for the children to think about their own family. As an adoptive mother, I applaud Grandma Krazy's book about adoption. It will be part of many discussions with children about this important process. Handled with genuine love and care, Grandma Krazy has achieved a breakthrough book. I highly recommend it for children everywhere, as it will help them learn about adopted children. Their parents will also have a lovely tool for further discussions about adoption.

Verified Purchase My 8 year old daughter and I read this book together. She is not adopted but it is a great book to educate her about what adoption is - and how no matter if you are adopted or not, differences are good! My daughter said, "I loved this book, it's like how no two flowers grow the same way." Such a simple cute book! Definitely check out the authors other book.about Mango - we now have both and read them often!

Verified Purchase This is a beautiful story to be shared with those children that are adopted and those children that have questions about adoption. Differences exist in all families and differences seem to be an underlying message. (I was one of those children - so different from my siblings.) So please share with all your children and celebrate those adoptions and differences!

A delightful and engaging story about a ginger cat who doesn’t look like the rest of her family. She wants to look like them but discovers that it’s not looking alike that makes a family love each other. And that although her siblings look alike, they have many differences that make them who they are. She also learns how loved she is - by her birth mum and her adoptive family. If you have an adopted child I highly recommend this book. Even if your children aren’t adopted, I still recommend this heartwarming book!

Love conquers all

Whether the parents are adopted or biological, it’s the love showered on the child that matters most! The author has brought out this profound message so simply and beautifully. I strongly recommend this book for all children, even if they’re not adopted
